3 Home Remodeling Trends for 2018 and 2019 

 

There are many more trends you will see for the upcoming years. Many ideas are more modern, while some of the older, retro styles are coming back. You will need to decide what type of style you wish to have when remodeling your home.

Whether you are looking to update a room in your home or designing a new home, here are some trends to look for:

Accommodations for Multiple Generations

Families are choosing to live with extended family members more in recent years. This causes the need for multifunction for multiple generations. One thing to consider would be to add basement living complete with a second kitchen. Another option is to add a main-floor bedroom for parents that are aging and can’t maneuver stairs as well.

Open Shelving

One modern trend is to have open kitchen shelving. This lets you show off your dish collection rather than putting them in a china cabinet. It can also be a storage solution for bulkier items. This is a very popular solution for modern and rustic kitchen designs. Some will even have a combination of open and closed shelving.

Smart Lighting Controls

One of the biggest lighting trends is automatic lighting. Not only do smart light controls save energy, but they can also be customized. This is useful since lighting needs can vary depending on the time of year, time of day, and the individual user. Many of the smart light controls can be used via an app on your phone. This is a wonderful safety tool to turn on your lights if you’re going to be away from home. You can also turn on your porch light as you pull into your driveway and won’t have to walk in the dark.
